Aries 2018 Forecast
You have the power
March 21 – April 19
ASSERTIVE • COMPETITIVE • PASSIONATE
A self-starter full of energy and enthusiasm, you have the power to light a nation to your cause! You are very competitive and like to win—or why try at all? Being self-employed is a dream for you, but if you head your department at work, that will make you happy, too. Passionate, intense, and sexy, the Aries woman enjoys the thrill of the romantic chase. You enjoy being considered “the prize.” Why, you say, would you make it easy for your suitor to win your heart when the courtship is the best part? If two suitors vie for your attention at the same time, all the better! After you wed, you’ll enjoy being a continual surprise for your mate, full of fun and fresh ideas for things to do together.
You will be thrilled with all of the money coming your way this year! You can get financial aid for school, venture capital for a new business, or a home improvement loan to renovate. If you are negotiating a new job or promotion and can’t get the salary you want, look for company perks. The financial area of your chart will glow brilliantly for you—so if you do need money, just ask for it! With Saturn in Capricorn, you will rise through the ranks to take on a job of great responsibility. Saturn will stay there for three years, and during that time, you will work very hard. All your efforts will be rewarded, however, and by December 2020 you will become a seasoned leader in your industry.
In 2018, you will likely be thrilled with the money you see come to you, due to the good fortune of Jupiter helping you from your eighth house of other people’s money. This is the first time that Jupiter has visited this area of your chart since late 2005. Your efforts to fund an expensive dream are edging closer than you might assume, so fill out the application and have meetings with influential people to get the money you need. You can get financial aid for college or graduate school, get venture capital for a new business idea, or get a home improvement loan to renovate. You will have ten glorious months of Jupiter’s financial help in 2018, plenty of time to see your dream in motion.
You will be a money magnet until November 2018, so if you are negotiating a new job or promotion and you can’t get the salary you want, look for company perks as the area where you can do well—those benefits may more than make up for any salary shortfall being offered. Jupiter is a wonderful planet, for its job is simply to make you happy.
Your solar eighth house of other people’s money covers a wide area. It rules the large sums of money you would need to borrow (or be given) to start progress on a dream that is dear to you. Taxes fall in this house too, so you might get a generous tax refund. If you want to buy a house, you may go to the bank for a mortgage and would likely be given one with attractive rates.
This financial area of your chart will glow brilliantly for you—more than for any other sign—so if you do need money, you must not hesitate to ask for it. Other areas of gain include court or divorce settlements, division of assets at the end of a business, child support, inheritance, a generous insurance payout, money from a pension, prize winnings (including being a contestant on a TV show!), or a valuable gift.
To be clear, the eighth house, so lit up for you, is not the house of salary—that would be the second house—although at times you will feel some spillover of energy from the eighth house to your salary house. This is because houses opposite each other on the horoscope wheel often ping energy and benefits back and forth across the skies in a straight line.
If you work on commission, royalty, licensing fee arrangement, or are eligible for a bonus, you should do well this year. Perhaps you can work on a compensation package that will be part flat fee and part commission, or negotiate a year-end bonus. This area of your chart also rules such benefits as vacation days, flextime, matching tuition funding, a great health insurance policy, and so forth. You can be creative this year in your negotiations if you can’t quite get the salary you want.
From November 2018 to early December 2019, Jupiter in his new setting will be wonderful too, for Jupiter in Sagittarius will have you traveling far and wide to at least one foreign country you’ve never visited. Publishing, broadcasting, academic interests, and the courts all will shine for you too in November and December—and beyond, into 2020.
Saturn will have moved into Capricorn just days before you start the year. In Capricorn, you will rise through the ranks to take on a job of great responsibility and power. You won’t have to wait long to see the truth of this—in January 2018, six planets will migrate into Capricorn, all in your house of fame and honors, and a new title or award will be yours. Saturn will remain in Capricorn for three years, and during that time you will work very hard. All your efforts will be rewarded, however, and by December 2020 you will turn yourself into a force to be reckoned with, a seasoned leader in your industry.
